  • The CAGR of Income from operations over the last 3 years, from the cinema division stood at 39%, from the F&B division at 70% and from the retail and cash & carry division at 59%.
  • There is constant crosspromotional support between the cinema exhibition, food & beverages and retail businesses of the company. The schemes and offers are advertised across all the locations of other divisions. Not only does this save promotional expenses, but it also strengthens the brand image. It also organizes mall activities such as campaigns and fairs for collective branding. The presence of different businesses in a single location complements the businesses for each of the segments. It also runs schemes whereby the customers are given the opportunity to derive benefits for purchases made in one segment with another segment
  • The company has better negotiation ability with mall developers because of its presence in related business segments like cinema exhibition, food & beverage, retail, which are capable of generating higher number of customer footfalls. The presence of the company's businesses in shopping mall helps the developer to market mall space to other retailers.
  • By virtue of being in multiple segments, it is relatively insulated against seasonality, as each segment is active at different points throughout the year. Though, each segment gets affected by seasonal fluctuation, diversity in business provides regular cash flows throughout the year.


  • The company faces competition from other cinema houses, food & beverages outlets, retailers and jewelry manufacturers. These include stand-alone outlets in the organized and unorganized sector, as well as other chains of outlets.
  • It has negative cash flow from operating activities of Rs 24.07 crore in FY2009, Rs 95.59 crore in FY2010 and Rs 47.18 crore in FY2011.
  • Some of the promoter group companies have objects similar to that of the company and are conflicting in nature. Out of the promoter group companies, eight companies have main objects which conflict with the present business activities of the company
  • The cinema exhibition business is seasonal and its results of operations may fluctuate from quarter-to-quarter. Also the business is dependent on the popularity of the films it exhibits.
  • In retail, certain products like apparels may go out of style/fashion on account of changing customer preferences. This may lead to dead stock or increased cost of carrying that stock and as well as witnessing a downgrade in the realizable value of the same.
  • In the cash & carry business, the wholesale goods purchased by it are subject to commodity price fluctuations. Any significant negative variation in such prices will adversely impact the results of operation.
  • In the jewelry business, gold typically constitute major component of raw material cost and any adverse price fluctuations in gold would substantially increase cost of materials and adversely affect profit margin. Further, if there is a significant upward variation in the prices of gold, the consumers may hold back / reduce their purchases. This may adversely affect results of operation.


The consolidated net sales for FY 2011 has increased by 56% to Rs 2040.97 crore, with the operating profit margin of 4.5% and net profit of Rs 37.51 crore, which was up by 43%.

At a price band of Rs 58 to Rs 65 per equity share of Rs 10 face value, the P/E at the lower band works out to 21.5 times and at the upper band it works out to be 24.1 times on the EPS of Rs 2.7 for FY11 (on post-IPO equity).
